If you want to catch Arceus Unown in Pokémon Legends, you must embark on an extended search for the 28 forms of the Pokémon. Since these are extremely well hidden, we show you the locations of all 28 Unown on the map.
Pokémon Legends Arceus: Catch Unown & find all 28 Shapes
During the main story in the Red Marsh, you will automatically encounter an Unown along with Professor Laven. He will then give you the Unown Research Notes and a new entry in the Pokédex. From this point on, you are allowed to search for the 28 forms of Unown that have been hiding all over the Hisui region, similar to the spirit lights.
In the research notes, you can decipher notes on the localities at the bottom. Since each Unown shape represents a letter, you can use this to decode the tips. If you want to complete the Unown Pokédex entry and reach research level 10, you need to find all 28 forms.
Once you’ve discovered an Unown, you simply have to throw an ordinary Pokéball onto the shape to catch it. You cannot fight Unown, and you cannot fail in capture. Captured forms will also now appear in the Ruins of Solace in the Red Marsh, where you can recapture them if needed.
So that you can all find Unown, we will show you the exact locations of all 28 forms on the following maps.
